“By my troth, your town is troubled with unruly boys.”
- in Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors 3.1.63
Horoscopes for 11.5.2020
Mars is grinding to a halt, Mercury goes un-retrograde, and Venus is opposite Mars, then there’s the Jupiter and Pluto alignment with Saturn as a leavening agent. What that means? Is your town troubled by unruly boys, too? Makes it a comedy of errors, maybe? One Shakespeare scholar used the term that “Farce is accelerated tragedy.” Think that sums it up? In the days ahead?
I was recently complimented on my selection of floral print shirts. I’m a little scared to call them “Hawaiian Shirts,” because most of mine don’t come from the island of Hawaii. It’s easy to tell the expensive ones from the cheap ones, if one knows the difference. Most of mine are cheap. The trick is? Look at the pocket. The really good shirts? Besides being linen and silk with real wood buttons, the shirt’s pattern aligns with the pocket. On my cheaper ones? If there even is a pocket? It doesn’t line up. Little trick, and I got complimented on my selection the other day, made me think of the difference between the nice ones and the cheap ones. Made me think of Scorpio. “Nice and cheap?” No, this is about attention to details. Little details that are obvious, right there, in front of us. Little, easily observable telltale clues that are clearly visible? Right in front of Scorpio? Happy birthday, now, pay attention. Little clues, right in front, easy to see, easy to decipher. Right there — plain sight.
